Video tutorial on searching for dictionaries and encyclopedias

Why use dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks?

Dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks, or tertiary sources, are often overlooked sources of scholarly knowledge.  If you want a great definition of a theory that goes beyond Wikipedia, I highly recommend some of these titles held by UVic Libraries.

Tertiary source: "A written work, such as a chapter in a textbook or entry in a reference book, based entirely on secondary sources, rather than on original research involving primary documents." (The Online Dictionary for Library and Information Science).
